DIY supply shops in Hong Kong and Singapore
 
Hi,

I'll be spending a couple of weeks in Hong Kong and Singapore.
Can you recommend some interesting DIY supply shops to visit?

So far, I've found this:

as well as this:

Thank,

In Singapore you will want to visit Sim Lim Square and Sim Lim Tower. You will find tons of DIY electronics and gray market hifi stores. Checkout Adelphi Center across from the main court building. Most of the country's retail hifi shops are there. The cab drivers are all familar with these places.

Good Luck,

Hi, i'm from Singapore...

dw8083 is rite.

Sim Lim Square - computer products/parts, hi-fi, cameras, lotsa stuff.

Sim Lim Towers - Great place to get electronics stuff. It's like an electronics hub. 1 stop place for almost everything you need. lol ~!

best part is the 2 buildings are just adjacent to one another ~

and when you are at the sim lim square you should not miss the building just behind it, there you will find two tube shops, i only remember the name of one of them, Martin Electronics.

I always wondered .... when you go thru airport custom, don't you have to go thru hell (countless explanation) when they see so many items that looks like bombs (to non DIY personnel) & what not .... is it worth the trouble?

Not normally. The only time i had to enlighten customs and security personnel was when i travelled between HK, SG and Indonesia with a pair of S&B 102 TVCs in my hand luggage. At HK International a security guy noticed that x-rays don't pass too well through mu-metal. After a short interview with the suspect he called a few colleagues (bomb squad?) and the bravest removed a transformer from my bag holding it by the wires and staring at it with a mixture of fear and disgust. It only got worse in Indonesia.

I once had six 300W 110V light bulbs in my hand luggage from Mexico to Frankfurt. The security guy was completely puzzled by their looks in the x-ray screening. After some consulting and a couple of colleagues and a few confused stares they let me go on. This was in 2003 maybe.

Hey guys

Thanks for the advise, I'm off to Singapore in 3 weeks and will check this out!

I'm not to bothered about customs as we are going on to New Zealand and they are not really looking for drugs or bombs just fruit and veg! lol

Anyway great info, thanks
